      2006 Kiteboard Pro World Tour - since 1999
      ESSAOUIRA KITEBOARD WORLD CUP - 40 000USD

      20 / 26 July 2006







      THE PREMIER ESSOUIRA EVENT ENDS WITH SUPERB FREESTYLE FINALS!



      The premier event in Morocco for the Kiteboard Pro World Tour 2006 saved the best for the last in Essaouira with the Freestyle Finals held on Tuesday.



      The Freestyle Finals brought the winners from the 1st Elimination Bracket against the winners from the 2nd Elimination Bracket, giving everyone a second chance eventually in the event. The conditions were as stable as the day before and the heats started with full speed in the morning. The Men's heats were especially breath-taking as the second bracket winners challenged the 1st bracket's riders thoroughly. In the end, Sébastien Garat (FRA) held on to his former title against Christian Holley (SPA). There was only one surprise for the Women as Ainhoa Garcia (SPA) made some great tricks to claim the third place from Angela Peral (SPA).



      Later in the afternoon, the finals of the Speed Crossing race gave the crowd an outstanding visual show as well as pure adrenalin. It was Vincent Tiger (FRA) who passed the finish line by only a few inches ahead of Pierre Romain (FRA) for the Men and Aurelia Herpin (SPA) by 23 seconds ahead of Angela Peral (SPA).



      Following a full week of competitions, the riders cooled off at the Taros Terrace in the night for a private party for the tour.



      The Kiteboard Pro World Tour Essouira 2006 is to come to an end with at the prestigious Ryad Mogadar Hotel on Wednesday after a cool 2nd Chance Hang Time session.
